Glorious Fall

Praise the Lord, My husband
arrived home from Belarus!

All is right with my world,
I thought as he bent down
to embrace me.

I could not stop the tears from overflowing,
I was so relieved to see him.

Apart from the prickly beard
(he forgot his shaver) he looked wonderful
 and none worse for the wear.

We talked into the night about his
wonderful time with the Belarusian
people and the work they
were able to accomplish.

It wasn’t well into the night,
 mind you, he was exhausted!

My weekend was awesome,
 to say the least.

My Joe was home, Tracy came up
and I just kept feeling better and better.

This morning I walked down the driveway
with Tracy and Chester with the wind howling
in the trees and the leaves falling
around us like rain....

It was exhilarating!

I wasn’t even out of breath,
which is quite a difference
 from just a few days ago.

Feeling on top of the world
we piled into the car,
after a breakfast of eggs and bagels,
and headed for Brasstown Bald,
to see the beautiful Fall leaves.


I even got into the courtesy van
which drove us to the very top.
We walked around the museum,
braving the wind, and
then back down to the parking lot.

I’m glad I changed from my bathrobe to a jacket :)

I have been so weak and Jesus
came in with His strength and I
feel almost whole again.

Releasing all my worries to Him
enabled me to lay quietly
in His presence,
allowing His light to soak
into me and He drove
out the darkness that
lodged within me.

Isn’t that beautiful?
Sarah Young encouraged me
in that way through my devotion,
“Jesus Calling”.

It’s been a lifeline for me.

“Hail Jesus, You’re my King
Your life brings me to sing
I will praise you all my days
Perfect in all Your ways”
